Pattie was born in Halifax County, NC on April 12, 1931 to the late Mamie and Shelby Fleming. She was a member of the Oak City Baptist Church, where she was active in the women’s group and Sunday School Class for many years. Pattie was married to Otis Windell Casper on December 18, 1948 for 65 years. She was truly a farmer’s wife. In addition, she worked for several years in the cafeteria at Hobgood Academy. She and her daughter, Linda, operated Casper’s Catering Service until her health declined and she was no longer able to bake. Many will remember her for the many desserts and cakes she made over the years. She and Otis loved to spend as much time as possible at the beach until their health declined. She lived for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who called her “Baba”. Pattie loved her family and friends dearly and took joy in doing things for others. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends, and all those who knew and loved her.
